Subject: High Power Rifle "Fun Match" - Sat. July 21


Fairfax Rod and Gun Club will be hosting a High Power Rifle "Fun Match" on Saturday, July 21. This match will be an 800 aggregate, 2 sighters will be permitted before each stage (88 rounds total), no alibi's or re-fires. For those who are going to Camp Perry you will have the option of shooting CMP style i.e. start from the standing position. You may also shoot the last 20 rounds in the off-hand position instead of prone if you want. I will not e-mail the results of this months match.

Registration begins at 8:00, $5.00 entry for all. No cash awards for this match.

Please bring exact change and a stapler for re-facing targets. We'll try to run this in two relays with scoring in the pits.

See you on the firing line,
